Lord I don’t wanna compete with everyone. I know I’m in a different race. I’m in a faith marathon that requires endurance, and a steady pace of grace but…..
I’m tempted to leave the race and just let my flesh loose and chase the fleeting pleasures of life but i know it will devour me, it’s a snare for my soul.
That’s what your holy word says.
My spirit man cries “don’t do it!” By my flesh is too strong.
Lost , confused, I don’t know how I can move on from this feeling.
Drawn away by my own desires.
Jesus you’re what I really want really need, please help my unbelief (that’s the stronghold).
Thinking that this sensual pleasure will satisfy my truest needs. O Lord I need mercy. May your mercy and grace never leave me, or forsake me. Jesus help me to truly turn from my wicked ways.
